NEW YORK(TIP): Indians 
appear gung-ho about Canada’s Express Entry program which invites top 
ranked candidates — under the country’s point-based immigration system —
 to take up permanent residency. Express Entry is Canada’s flagship 
program for key economic migration.

Under the scheme, out of the 86,022 
invitations sent in 2017, nearly 42% (or 36,310) were to those holding 
Indian citizenship. The total number of invitations sent in 2017 was 
more than double the previous year — 33,782.

In 2016, the number of invites sent to 
those having Indian citizenship in Canada was merely 11,037, showing an 
increase by more than 200% a year later.

Wait for Green Card sends desis to Canada

According to the Express Entry Year-end 
Report, 2017, issued recently by the Canadian government’s immigration 
division, a little over one lakh applications were received for 
permanent residency under the Express Entry program in 2017, 86,022 
invitations were sent, and 65,401 permanent residents and their families
 were admitted into Canada.

Nearly 40% of this total or 26,000-plus Indians became permanent residents in Canada.

Among those applicants who had job 
offers and were admitted as permanent residents, occupations like 
information system analysts, software engineers and designers, computer 
programmers and university lecturers topped the charts.

These statistics, showing an increase in
 number of Indians opting for Canadian permanent residency, strengthen 
the belief that many H-1B visa holders, tired of the backlog and 
infinite wait for a green card in the US—a green card grants permanent 
residency on American soil—are now heading towards Canada.


Currently, more than three lakh Indians 
in the US are waiting for a green card, CATO Institute, a 
Washington-based think tank, states that given the green card backlog, 
the waiting period for Indians with an advanced degree (those in the 
EB-2 category) could be as much as 151 years.
